In a world with thousands of people who do what you do, you need so much more than a headshot to stand out. I know how to get the images you need & am a wardrobe stylist, marketing consultant, graphic designer, & photographer all in one.
Your audience needs to see authentic you on a regular basis in order to connect. I will dive deep into learning who you are in order to capture that on camera, ensuring that your story is always fresh on everyone’s mind.
Stop showing up with cell phone selfies. Instead, make an investment in your business & show up in the marketplace with professional, magazine-quality imagery. Transform your brand from bland to beautiful!
with your audience
as beautiful you
Having a photographer at your disposal isn't just for celebrities, it's for anyone who wants their brand to be known intimately. I only work with 12 recurring clients per year due to the amount of time involved in telling each brand's story.
Our personal branding photography package includes EVERYTHING you need to market your business. Click next to see everything that's included & pricing info:
Once you book, you'll get a free copy of my 16-page workbook, 10 Steps to Branding Your Business Beautiful. This workbook is written from my perspective coming from 15 years spent working in corporate marketing on recognizable brands like 7-11, Panera Bread, Purina, Nothing Bundt Cakes, & many more.
CUSTOM BRANDING BOARD
If you haven't already had it done, I'll design a custom branding board so you'll always have your brand colors front of mind.
10 CUSTOM STOCK PHOTOS (optional)
You'll receive 10 custom stock photos shot in your brand colors. These will be just for you & used by no one else in the world. If you decide you don't need stock photos, you can substitute these for extra lifestyle photos.
2 BUSINESS HEADSHOTS
You'll also get 2 business headshots to use on your LinkedIn & business cards.
50 LIFESTYLE PHOTOS
You'll get 50 lifestyle photos. These are photos that tell your story. They show you doing what you do for a living, as well as what you do in your downtime. Lifestyle photos will increase your know, like, & trust factor and are great to use on your website & social media.
5 CANVA INSTAGRAM TEMPLATES
You'll get 5 complimentary, custom Canva Instagram templates thrown in just because I want to help you keep your grid poppin' & beautifully branded. A video tutorial is included so you'll know how to modify them yourself.
I will send you my Style Guide & then you'll be welcome to text photos of outfits you're considering for your shoot to get feedback on what to wear. Nearly everyone you see on this site was both styled by me, including these fashion models that appear in the above magazine spreads I shot.
You have the option to add on my licensed hair & makeup artist. If you choose this option, she'll be on set all day to make sure you stay looking fresh with multiple hair & makeup changes.
PRO HAIR & MAKEUP ARTIST
all day shoot
You will have me at your disposal all day, shooting an unlimited amount of photos. The goal is to get you enough images for 3 months of social media content. Don't worry, it's a lot more fun than it sounds, & we'll take a break for lunch as well as a other breaks as needed.
You won't have to worry about how to pose. As a former model, I used to teach at a modeling school. I will show you exactly what to do & offer a "monkey see, monkey do" approach to posing. These are some photos from my modeling days.
1 MINUTE VIDEO
During the shoot, I will be taking both still & film footage of you doing what you do. We will also record you speaking for a minute to use as a voiceover in the video. You'll be able to use this video for the "about me" page on your website.
Because no two personal branding sessions with us are alike - each is customized to suit our clients' individual needs - pricing can range anywhere from $2-$5k. To provide you with a detailed quote, we'll need to chat about what you need. Click the button below to request your free consultation!

I'm an online entrepreneur & coach. I have a course and work with 40-50 clients at a time. Things are busy. My online presence is very important as clients judge me & my work by my photos. I did a shoot with Candace & I was blown away by the first-class treatment I received from her entire team! I didn't hesitate at all to make the investment. If I get just one more client, the shoot pays for itself. I couldn't believe how hard they all worked the ENTIRE day! I felt like the most important person in the world and pampered. I'm very picky about my makeup and hair, and honestly, my makeup & hair looked the best it's looked in 32 years. Candace's artist is phenomenal. Wish I could look that way everyday. If you're wondering if you need new images for your online marketing needs, just do it. Candace will take GREAT care of you!
first class treatment
blown away by THE
Candace is incredible. She was able to pull off exactly what I wanted and needed for my branding. She was there throughout the whole process, from picking out the right outfits, finding the perfect location, to posing. She made sure my photos really represented my brand. I am not an easy person to photograph as I'm picky. But she was very helpful & patient to get the exact photos I wanted. I'm confident that these pictures are going to help boost my business because they make all of my marketing look more polished and really represent what I do. I'm thrilled with how my pictures came out!
exact photos my brand needed
Candace delivered the
Candace has such a sweet, exuberant personality and she makes you feel comfortable posing for personal branding photos. This was my first experience doing a photo shoot, & it was AMAZING. I was super nervous about the whole thing beforehand, but she walked me through every step, and every detail was fabulous. She puts so much work and passion into what she does and it ultimately shows in every photo. Totally loved the outcome of mine. My friends and family couldn't stop complimenting her work either when they saw my pics. I want to someday give the gift of doing a photo shoot with Candace to someone I love. It was a special moment for me and I know it'll be for them. Totally recommend!
she made me so comfortable
IT WAS my first shoot
Candace is an AMAZING photographer...gifted, knowledgeable, creative, and FUN!! Thank you so much for the beautiful personal branding photos. I absolutely love them and look forward to working with you again!
i absolutely love my photos
Excellent service, very professional, and wonderful experience. Wouldn't change it for anything. Thank you Candace, we love you & you are the BEST!
As an entrepreneur, you have many stories to tell about the woman behind your brand. One might be that you work from home, in which case we will take photos of you at your computer. Another might be that you love to bake cookies with the kids in your downtime, so we'll get photos of that too. Whatever YOUR story is, I'm here to capture it in a way that shows the woman behind your brand authentically. For a more extensive list of story ideas, click here. I'm constantly adding to this list, but of course we will shoot whatever is important to YOUR brand
Q: what's a story?
Personal branding photography is a little different than traditional portrait photography. Legally, in order to use your images in marketing materials, you need a commercial license. However, as we retain the copyright, the commercial license does NOT allow you to sell your images as stock photography or in any other way. Also, just incase you're wondering, commercial use means your images will NOT have annoying watermarks on them & you do NOT have to credit me when you use them, though shout-outs are always appreciated & returned.
Q: what's a commercial license?
YES! I LOVE to travel & usually plan a trip to at least one city outside of Dallas per year to photograph new clients. Current destination shoot goals include LA, Vegas, Ireland, & Greece. I'm also willing to come to you anywhere in the US at no additional cost if you + at least 2 friends book any type of session. Or, I'll go anywhere in the world just for you if you cover my flight & hotel. Contact me for more info!
Q: DO YOU SHOOT OUTSIDE OF DALLAS?
I remember my first photoshoot; the photographer just told me, "Go stand over there," then never gave any direction after that. I felt really awkward & as a result, there were only 1 out of 100+ photos that I liked. This is NOT how I work. I direct you all the way down to your fingertips. Even if you've never done something like this before, you don't need to worry with a modeling coach (I used to model & teach modeling professionally at a school) by your side! Additionally, you won't have to wait until your viewing to see how beautiful you are as I will show you the back of my camera during the shoot. A lot of photographers don't want you to see un-retouched photos, but I believe that showing them during the shoot helps women become more comfortable in their own skin based on my own experiences in front of the camera. Gradually, as I show you great picture after great picture, your confidence will increase which will lead to the dreamy photos you've always wanted.
Q: I've never done something like this before & have no idea how to pose...will my pictures turn out ok?
I'm hoping you'll book my team & I for the full experience. However, I understand that you might have reasons for doing your own hair & makeup. Just let me know when you book that you won't be using my artist so I can be sure not to schedule her.
Q: I WANT TO DO MY OWN HAIR & MAKEUP...IS THAT POSSIBLE?
